CA – Losing the Girl Signing

Cartoonist MariNaomi appears at Skylight Books on Thursday, May 3, 2018 at 7:30 PM to sign Losing the Girl (Life on Earth #1).

Claudia Jones is missing. Her classmates are thinking the worst . . . or at least the weirdest. It couldn’t be an alien abduction, right? None of Claudia’s classmates at Blithedale High know why she vanished—and they’re dealing with their own issues. Emily’s trying to handle a life-changing surprise. Paula’s hoping to step out of Emily’s shadow. Nigel just wants to meet a girl who will laugh at his jokes. And Brett hardly lets himself get close to anybody.

In Losing the Girl, the first book in the Life on Earth trilogy, Eisner-nominated cartoonist MariNaomi looks at life through the eyes of four suburban teenagers: early romance, fraying friendships, and the traces of a mysterious—maybe otherworldly—disappearance. Different chapters focus on different characters, each with a unique visual approach.

MariNaomi is the award-winning author and illustrator of four comics memoirs. Losing the Girl is her first graphic novel and her first foray into fiction that (possibly) involves alien life forms. She’s also the creator of the Cartoonists of Color and Queer Cartoonists databases. She lives in California with her husband and many cats and dogs. Visit her website at marinaomi.com.

CA – Hermes Signing

George O’Connor, author of THE OLYMPIANS series, appears at Books Inc. on Thursday, May 10, 2018 at 6:00 PM to launch & celebrate the newest installment of the series, HERMES: TALES OF THE TRICKSTER!

About the Book:
In the newest of the New York Times—bestselling Olympians series, author/artist George O’Connor focuses on Hermes, the trickster god.

In volume ten of Olympians, George O’Connor delves into the myth of Hermes, the trickster god. From his infancy, when he bewitches animals and bends them to his will (stealing a herd of Apollo’s prize cattle in the bargain), to his adolescence and adulthood when he becomes father to the equally mischievous Pan, Hermes’s story is wildly entertaining as he brings a little bit of chaos to everything he touches or creates.

About the Author:
George O’Connor is the author of several picture books, including the New York Times bestseller Kapow!, Kersplash, and Sally and the Some-thing. His debut graphic novel, Journey into Mohawk Country, was published by First Second, as was Adam Rapp’s Ball Peen Hammer, which O’Connor illustrated. His series The Olympians includes such titles as Poseidon, Hera, Athena, Hades, and Zeus.
